Welcome back and welcome to the Spring 2013 semester, Aztecs.
Congratulations, welcome, and good luck to those students who are starting their first semester as an Aztec. I hope that everyone, new and old, had an amazing winter break and are ready for a new semester.
The Student Veterans Organization (SVO) has a multitude of activities planned for the Spring 2013 semester. February 1st we will be holding a Poker Night fundraiser at the Veterans House. The SVO will be serving food and hanging out with the Wounded Warriors Saturday February 10th. Aztec basketball season is in full stride, and we will be tailgating at the Veterans House Feb. 9 & 23 to support our fellow Aztecs. For those of you who love America’s favorite pastime, the Padres will be hosting an SVO night Friday, April 12th, when they host the Colorado Rockies.
Our new website is up and running thanks to the hard work of Jeremy Sutton, our Vice President of Communication; please check it out. There you will find information on upcoming events, postings for internship and job opportunities, and details (including photos) from past events. You’ll also find links to our Facebook page and Facebook group, as well as our Twitter page. The Facebook page contains links to recent SVO postings, links to relevant community & campus-related articles, and updates on upcoming events. Our Facebook group is where you will find updated information about current events and a chance to communicate with other SVO members.
Our first meeting of the semester will be held Monday, January 28 at 5:30 at the Veterans House (5500 Hardy Ave. San Diego, CA 92115). Food will be provided, but more importantly you will have a chance to meet the SVO officers and other fellow veterans as well as hear more details about everything coming up this semester. I look forward to seeing you there!
